Description Flumes are generally any sort of artificial construct intended to move water from one place to another, and are often used in dams. A log flume, however, moves water incidentally as a transport medium for fallen timber logs.Actual log flumes are now considered to be a relic of the past, with roads and timber trucks largely having replaced them in the modern logging world. At one time, however, the log flume could be found in a handful of countries around the world, but nowhere as ubiquitously as in the United States. Lumbermen of 19th century America built monumental log flumes to transport logs for miles where there were no suitable rivers to use, and where the terrain was too rugged to build a railroad.This log flume now stands in disrepair after the industry of logging in the Catskill Mountains of NY long ago died out. Logs were sent to the tanneries and other industries via this type of flume at the turn of the century and before. The Timber you see standing is now second growth after most of our forests were destroyed through the logging industries years back.
